Chelmsford welcomed table leaders Wimbledon on Saturday. The underdogs (sitting 7th) were ready and waiting to give the accomplished side a run for their money and with nothing to lose.
The first half set off and Chelmsford’s young side were up for it. Chelmsford started all guns blazing, and applied the pressure to Wimbledon. A well fought first half with attempts from both teams but it was Wimbledon who took the lead with a rebounded goal after some increased pressure.
Chelmsford went into the half time team talk positive and ready to get that goal back but Wimbledon had another plan. Chelmsford remained composed after some relentless pressure and defending some short corners. However Wimbledon kept pushing forwards and took a 2-0 lead.
Despite Chelmsford best efforts, Wimbledon took hold of a tracking presence and hammered in a few more. Chelmsford did not give up and had a few attacking opportunities with a short corner being deflected just wide. Wimbledon continued their pressure and ended the game 5-0 winners.
